Late last month (August), I ordered a one week supply of a product called Extreme AcaiBerry, an internal cleansing solution. This was a free sample and
I charged the mailing cost to my credit card. Ten days later, the company sent me a 30 day supply and billed my credit card for $87.00. The average cost charged by other companies on the internet is between $35. and $45.00. I called the company and they told me I had authorized the procedure by ordering the sample. I checked their website and that authorization was
buried deep in their website. While it was there it was not easy to find and no mention of it was made anywhere else in the site.
I believe this to be a scam because probably 75% of the people that see this ad fail to read the fine print and the company knows that. While the agreement even absent of any honest disclosure may be inforcable,
the company certainly knows that this is a dishonest business practice, and this is, no doubt, a conspiracy to defraud the buying public. Their intent is to scam the honest people who fail to read all of their fine print. This is at least a conspiracy to defraud the public. There is no way that this company
does not know how many consumers fail to read all their peovisions and as a result get billed for a grossly over priced product.
When I called the company to discuss this issue, I was told that the company has a "no refund" policy, but they would give me back half of my cost if I would return all of the product.
I have reported this incident to the Better Business Bureau in Davie Florida and the Attorneys General Offices in Texas and Florida.
This and all ripoff companies must be required to place a notice on their home page that by ordering the free sample they may be required to purchase additional products at full price. "see fine print for specifics".
